More Coloring – Because That’s What Big Kids Do

17 01 2016

I wanted to add three to this post, but two are being stubborn – like my 4yo is sometimes. But just like those situations, I’ll win in the end. That end may just have to be tomorrow.

This piece, Beautiful Lines by manic-goose, I picked because I LOVED the kimono. I’m trying to understand how the light hitting material affects it and how shadows, highlights, and mid-tones create more dimension. It’s like a magic trick, taking something flat and coloring it in a way that it doesn’t.

I’m still working on that magic trick, but I’m getting closer.

Thanks for looking, you can find the original line art here:
